Two-year starter that has experience at both guard and center. Has a history of knee injuries which has caused him to miss extensive playing time as a sophomore and a handful of games during his junior season.
Fundamentally sound lineman best in pass-protection. Quick off the snap, plays with a wide base and blocks with forward lean. Effective using his hands, stays square and keeps opponents in front of him. Displays good footwork in a small area, quarterbacks the offensive line well and looks to hit someone or help out line-mates. Effective getting out to block on the second level and works to bury opponents. Can pull across the line of scrimmage but not effective blocking on the move, lacks body adjustment and does not play with great balance. Must improve his overall body strength as he is taken out by bigger opponents. Hard worker who did a good job on the pivot this season which will help his cause and get him into a camp. Free Agent.
